Words cannot accurately express how excited we are about today’s wedding. It’s not just any wedding, peoples. It’s the wedding of Miss James and her man Aubrey, and their beautiful children. If you don’t follow the Bleubird blog, you’re in for a treat when you click over. It’s a heartfelt portrait of super sweet, and always stylish family. We’re big fans, that’s for sure.
And their wedding is such a gorgeous expression of what we imagine their life, and their love story to be. So many beautiful details (designed by the lovely Ashley Meaders), but nothing over wrought or too too. Just pure, delicious beauty captured expertly by the supremely talented Brooke Schwab. And their children (two for James first, and then one little wonder, Gemma Bird, together) were such an awesome part of their celebration, we just ate it all up.
And here we go:
Aren’t they gorgeous?
The bride’s entire look came from BHLDN… wedding dress, headpiece, boots, and ceremony dress. She looked smashing. Bridesmaids wore vintage, and the three of them together is almost too much to bear.
Oh little muffin! We want to devour you, Gemma Bird.
James walked down the aisle to Beauty by The Shivers, and they returned as husband and wife to The Ballad of John and Yoko by John Lennon.
Those cute glitter bags they made themselves… a super easy DIY project that definitely makes for a fun recessional.
James and Aubrey wanted their wedding to be effortless and easy so that they could really focus on the time with their family and close friends. They wanted it to reflect who they are and what they love, and we can probably all agree that this feels like THEM. Even if we don’t know them.
It’s epic, don’t you think? So so so many beautiful photos that this is just part one. We’ll be back soon with the reception. It’s just as good as you’re hoping. Promise.
